Spider was in a bedroom apartment against the floor baseboard. We captured it in a cardboard box and put it outside. It was about 3" long with a body of 1.7" long. Two attempts to capture it didn't bother it much, after the third attempt it ran away 5ft and climb up on under a sheet in the bed. That's when we knocked it into a cardboard box. Biggest spider I've ever seen.... Discussion Thread

Unfortunately most houses have them but often don't see them. It is also their mating season so the males are on the move to find the females. We have a spike every year about this time where we see several. So you aren't alone just get it treated to prevent an infestation. Sticky traps through out the house are also good to find where they might be heavier located, just place where kids and pets ... Discussion Thread
